It was amazing though. Probably the best camping experience i've had. As good as in African wild. The stars were wicked like nothing else. Only down side- besides going back to squatting again, was the sand that filled orifices in the morning. We had to sneak in cos military wouldn't allow us to pass check point and had to camo our truck and hide with the lights out when the cargo train passed us,seeing if we were illegals. Was all rather exciting.
Plenty of visits to hot springs (which sounds crazy when its 43c)One particular one at night that bubbled and contained 'quicksand' like sand which swallowed you and then lifted you out. Very cool.
Snorkelling in the Red Sea. Now that is an experience worth doing! Wow. Imagine a luxury liner fully decked out with only 8 of you and plush interior and 9 staff waiting to assist you and then diving in the most turquoise water you've ever seen... and you got my day yesterday. so amazing. You would swear that they modelled finding nemo from this spot. I have never seen so many different types of coral and fish.
Am over Egyptian men and hagglers. Shitting me to tears. Everyone is an opportunist and you seriously cannot leave your hotel without someone trying to sell you something 'for good price / or discount for you lady". Worse than Thailand. Makes me want to not buy anything which is great. All men have the worst one-liners too. We went shopping in main strip yday and you should have heard them. 'Excuse me lady, you dropped something... my heart". Funny at first but after the 550,000 time its annoying. All asking "where you from" so we would pick the most remote islands or make up countries and had our own fun.
You cannot get anywhere directly either. They all claim to take you there.. only via a few bazaars, museums, restaurants. I'm getting really good at doing runners when they wont listen to me when i yell at them.
Some though are totally lovely and have the most beautiful pale green eyes you've seen.
